I'm working on an existing Visual Studio solution which uses TDS.

I have added a new class library project in the Foundation layer namely MyProject.Foundation.Accounts. This project is not referenced in any of the other projects. It is only used in a patch config.

When I right-click on the Solution and choose Deploy Solution to publish files in my local instance, the new dll MyProject.Foundation.Accounts.dll is not published.

There is a MyProject.Build TDS project. When I check its properties (General), the Source Web Projects field lists all projects except for the new one.

How to include my new project and also, should the step be done for every new project.

Update : The Configuration properties has Build checked and Deploy disabled for both Release & Debug.

Set the Build and Deploy Settings in Configuration Manager. Select your project and check Build checkbox in your active solution configuration that is selected in the above first dropdown. Do this for all of the build configurations.

Try if this works for you.

  • The Build was already checked and Deploy checkbox is disabled for both debug & release. I have updated the snap in my question.
